Succi spoke about Las Leonas and the new captain
Last year was intense and unique for Las Leonas. The World Cup in Rosario marked a group of players that ratified their status as the best in the world in the country. However, far from remaining in memory, those led by Carlos Retegui have already begun to prepare for this year that will have as compromises summits the Champions Trophy in July and the Pan American Games, which will qualify for the Olympic Games, in October.
The Lionesses were put under the command of Retegui and Alejandro Labonia, the brand new physical trainer. The objective is short term: from 9 to 13 February in Mendoza and from 16 to 20 in Rosario will play two Four Nations Tournament against Australia, the United States and Germany.
Belén Succi, Argentina’s goalkeeper, talked with Clarín about the expectations of both tournaments, the goals of the year and the illusions of repeating what happened in 2010.
How was the first week of training? I will start on Monday because I have an injury to my left leg from which I am recovering. But for the girls it was very hard because we are training very hard. Whenever you come to rest, it costs. It is very important to start playing against teams of the likes of Australia or Germany. It motivates you after what we achieved last year. We are very good.
Is all the preparation focused on the Champions Trophy and the Pan American Games? Today we have the mind in the Four Nations. Knowing the Chapa, he’s going to tell us to go out and win all the tournaments. Whenever you play with the National Team, you think about going out to give everything and get the victory.
What will it be like to play in Mendoza and Rosario without Luciana Aymar and Soledad García, who are licensed until April? It will feel.
Fight is the best in the world and Sole brings a lot. We always want to have them in our team, but a break will be good for them. It will also give other girls the chance to have friction. Obviously when we return we will be waiting for you. Likewise, the group now is very nice, with many new players. A very good replacement is coming. There will be Lionesses for a while.
In the absence of the rosarina, Noel Barrionuevo will be the captain. And Succi commented: “She is very happy. She is adapting to be the captain and we are supporting her in what she needs “.
What particular objectives did you propose for 2011? I already decided to continue improving what I did last year. With that, I will feel satisfied.
